I watched a show on CNN that was talking about the New Geek. You might be surprised.
Old geeks: Stay in their rooms playing games all day and have bad social skills. Are usually dressed in a nerdy way
New geeks: Are very passionate about their hobbies and spend time, effort and money on the hobby. Are not neccessarily nerdy but they are independent and not afraid to stand out in a crowd. They are media sophisticates and read a lot: magazines, TV, blogs, discussion boards etc
Statistics(UK): 78% of them are married. As a group they are worth $11.8 billion. They are within the 18-44 age bracket.
So the question is this, are you a geek?
